Pole LAthe
Here’s an image of Mick’s pole lathe where my bowl and plate were created.  It’s hard to see all the workings from this view but it’s a pretty great set-up.

Watch these “Ghostcubes” change shape. 

Scientists from Duke University are examining the animal communities that decompose wood in our oceans.

Taking peeing outdoors to another level.
I’ve always kind of had a thing for peeing outdoors. Truth be told, “the urge” only hits me when I am backpacking and can find a killer view obscured from passers-by. This project, however, might be a little too exposed for my tastes.
The PPlanter is a street urinal project currently being tested in the Tenderloin. It is scaleable, reconfigurable and has the added bonus of biofilters that treat the wastewater for use in the planters that surround the installation. Dare I say the plants really tie the room together?
While this test is aimed at stemming the flood of public urination in the ‘Loin, you might see them popping up at your nearby beer gardens or parks. And think of the amazing branding opportunities that await an advertiser willing to expose themselves to some risk. 
If you are not pee-shy like me, you can try it yourself for the next two days between Jones and Taylor on Ellis Street.

The Las Piñas Bamboo Organ
Isa sa mga mapagmamalaki ng ating lahi pagdating sa musika.
Pinoy na pinoy sa pagkakakilala. Sumisimbolo sa musikang dumadaloy sa ating mga ugat.
Si Padre Diego Cera de la Virgen del Carmen, isang paring agustiniano ang nagtayo ng higanteng instrumentong ito. Naitayo ang Bamboo organ noong 1824 sa Parish Church of Saint Joseph. Piniling mabuti ang mga ginamit na kawayan sa pagbuo ng Organ na ito. Ilang taon din ang iginugol sa paggawa dito dahil ang mga kawayan ay ibinaon pa sa lupa upang malaman kung magandang uri ba.
Isang National Culture Treasure na ito noong 2004.
